Renewal of Vows for Christina & Joel - July 2017 @ Thornbury Castle

 

 

I'm very proud of this recent review taken from my Weddings in Wiltshire page.

 

I can’t say enough about how pleased we were with Teri’s performance at our 20th anniversary. I will be honest, I was a little scared and hesitant with picking someone out the way we did. My husband and I live in Florida so all of our planning was done via email. We couldn’t meet with anyone face to face. That is a feat in itself. She was quick to respond, polite, informative, and very helpful. She did everything to make our day about us and her writing was perfect. We could not have asked for a more perfect experience. We highly recommend her. Thank you for making our day magical!!!

Olivia and Grant - May 2017 @ Berwick Lodge

 

Dear Teri

 

Olivia and myself would like send you a massive thank you for being our celebrant at our wedding!


Our ceremony was so much fun and it was all thanks to your experience and expertise.


Thank you also for making such a fabulous ceremony for us at such short notice.


We also really appreciated the little touches that you added such as the deal or no deal logo on the back of our promises and the beer part was cool too.


It was so personal and it was just perfect!


Thank you so much,

Grant & Oli

The Wedding of Beth and Phil - April 2017 at The Matara Centre

 

Lovely email received from my #mataracentre bride and groom. Such an honour to write personal ceremonies for my couples.

We're now back in Dubai and both trying to settle back into the usual routine. So I now have a moment to sit down and drop you an email to say a huge thank you for the lovely wedding ceremony you did for Phil and I at the Matara centre. Aside from the weather (thank goodness we kept the ceremony to 20 minutes) together with a baby who had decided she had had enough of being passed around people all morning, it was a lovely, lovely ceremony. Just what we wanted - I just wish I had more of a chance to really feel the moment; however I guess that's what all brides say. It was very us with the right balance of formality and informality, classical wedding elements and spirituality. Thank you so much for all your help and assistance and also for the gorgeous handfasting cord - it has come back to Dubai with us and will be included in our wedding box.

Wedding for Jayne and Martin September 2015

 

Choosing Teri as our Celebrant has to be one of the best decisions of entire Wedding. Although we got married legally at Gretna Green the week before we wanted our Festival Wedding to commence with a personalised ceremony. Teri was absolutely amazing at incorporating all the aspects we wanted such as Love locks, finger prints, Time Lord Certificates etc and also suggesting some others such as hand fasting and jumping the broom. Throughout the whole ceremony writing process she was totally flexible whilst injecting her own professionalism and vast experience throughout. During the ceremony itself she was highly organised and professional and pitched the whole thing with exactly the right balance of formality and fun. She even offered to wear a medieval outfit in keeping with our theme. When we were initially pricing up our Wedding ideas we wondered if we could do without a Celebrant, we decided we couldn't, and I have to say that was absolutely the right choice! There were some things in our wedding that we could have done without, but Teri definitely wasn't one of them! So many people came up to me afterwards and said how lovely the ceremony was and it was!! I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Teri to anyone, she not only met, but totally exceeded all our expectations!

 

The Wedding of Emma & Craig - August 2015 @ Fullingbridge Farm

 

Teri was a joy to have in planning our wedding. I would consider her an asset to any Bride to be. Teri often knew what I wanted before I did. Although when discussing ideas she was always happy to listen to our thoughts and adapt. The words used in our ceremony reflected us as individuals and as a couple and couldn't have been better. Thank you for sharing in our special day. There are no words to recommend highly enough. Thank you x Mr & Mrs Ingram Wedding for

 

The Wedding of Jon and Delia - Little Quarme Cottages July 2015

 

Just a note to say a big thank you for our wedding day, you helped so much with the vows and the planning.

Wedding for Amanda & Roger - May 2015 @ Victoria Park Bath

 

Had an amazing day yesterday at the wedding of my amazing friend Amanda and her very dashing new husband Roger Nicot. Teri Stout did a fantastic job of conducting the ceremony and it really was a moving and fabulous day. Thank you for allowing me to share it with you xx

Renewal of Vows for Holly and Andy - August 2014 @ Sheepdrove Organic Farm

 

We both loved our day and the ceremony you led for us was a very special part of this.  In fact the ceremony was one of my favourite moments of the whole day.  It was just so lovely to have something that was tailored so intimately for us.  You were a joy to work with and a real saint with your patience! I felt I had found the right person to create our service when I saw how seriously you took your initial research into us as a couple but when we finally met you we were both so pleased and knew we were going to have a perfect ceremony.  After the wedding we had so many guests come up to us to tell us how much they had enjoyed the service and that it was one of the most personal and unique ceremonies they had ever attended. Plus many of them told us how emotional it was and I think there were many tears (not just mine!) We both loved how we could write our own vows and keep them a secret from each other but still be guided by you to ensure we were 'singing from the same hymn sheet'.  I felt really touched at how sensitive you were not to add to any of my pre wedding stress by not telling me how late Andy's vows were.  You were always so sensitive in your hints to chase up Andy.  I assumed when you stopped asking that he had sent them but now I know that you were kindly not involving me and dealing directly with Andy.  I think this is a real sign of a thoughtful celebrant!  We will forever look back on our wedding day with the fondest of memories and want to thank you for your role in delivering our wonderful service.
 
We hope you enjoy watching our short video edit and our photo slideshow. If we know of anyone in your area looking for a celebrant we will not hesitate to recommend you :-)
 
All the very best
 
Holly & Andy xx

Wedding for Mark and Heather - July 2014 @ Longford Barn

 

Well back to reality and back to work now:(  Just wanted to say a huge big thank you for doing such a brilliant job for Mark & Heathers Wedding, you certainly made it a day to remember and put together such a great thoughtful and moving Ceremony, which I know Mark & Heather, myself and Heathers parents will remember for always. The hand fasting is such a nice touch, it was lovely and a great memento of the day for Mark & Heather.

I'm so pleased Mark & Heather choose you as their Celebrant they couldn't have chosen a lovelier more caring and considerate person than you Teri you obviously love what you do and that shines through in your service and attention to detail and I'm only sorry that we didn't get to chat for very long at their Wedding.

Thank you again Teri and all the very best for all your next Celebrations

 

Comments from Mark and Heather themselves

 

Thank you soooo much for your beautiful ceremony, dress fittings and all of the wonderful help & advice you gave us along the way.

We had an amazing day! I don't think it has fully sunk in yet, a lot of it is still a blur!

Thank you for the pictures :) we love them!.

Thank you once again from the bottom of our hearts, the day was everything we wanted and more and you played a massive part in that.

Wedding for Lee and Lou - July 2014 @ Talton Lodge

 

We loved the ceremony so much. It was relaxed, funny and meaningful. This is all reflected in the wedding photos!
 
You listened to what we wanted and delivered that (and more!) on the day. Everyone commented on how lovely and how 'us' it was. Although we weren't expecting it, the ending was brilliant! 
 
Thank you so much for everything x

We had a brilliant time and enjoyed every minute of the ceremony, broom jumping, dancing and partying.  We hope you enjoyed it as much as us.

Thanks so much Teri!!! Everyone kept telling us how wonderful the ceremony was and how emotional it was!!

 

You really helped to make it special after everything that happened and already having been through a 

 

marriage ceremony! I thought there would be no emotion in this and I was completely wrong! Thanks again!
